. narrator: cities and municipalities across the united states are now facing this funding gap, between projected revenue and projected expenses, as they strive to maintain water quality and meet demand. new york is the most densely populated city in the u.s. and over 40 million tourists visit the city every year. the 1.3 billion gallons of water required every day are delivered by a system of extraordinary scale and complex engineering. man: water is essential to the economic viability of new york city. reliable infrastructure and reliable delivery of water is a must. you have to reinvest in the infrastructure every single minute to keep it current. hurwitz: we have the stock exchange, we have the united nations -- failure can have a dramatic impact on the nation, and even internationally. so there's a really keen awareness that you always have to be fixing the system. things corrode, they rust. they get to where you turn them on and nothing happens. but it is so totally used in every nook and cranny, that making any accommodation to shut it down, to do something to it, is very difficu

to cut this. as this board knows well i have always supported city schools and never think this is a bad expenditure of our dollars. san francisco has made an incredible front in the last several years to increase access to the programs and increase the quality of the programs citywide. the citywide collaboration is known in expanding known in collaborative and lead by dcyf. in terms of active collectively we have 70 percent of k through 8 children want to enroll in one. as though this is a much higher percentage, we would like to see more access. project k through fund has been an important program and we would like to see this improve. i'm proud to have served on the first year of the prop age fund advisory committee that helps guide originally how it's allocated the first $10 million for the 55,000 students whether it was on libraries, arts, sports, bathrooms, and many other needs that our schools have. when you visit our schools which i know many of you do and i did every would elk that i served on the school board, you see what these dollars do for the children. one of the primary

i appreciate supervisor kim's question. i would ask the city attorney the question differently. is there a reasonable argument here that the controlling date is in fact a later date in this case? is that a reasonable? is that a reasonable argument to be made that it's the case here? >> john from the city attorneys office. it's a difficult question to respond to in light of for example supervisor kim acknowledging that there might be tenant groups that might want to challenge the interpretation. i would be reluctant as a legal matter to support that interpretation. the language is pretty clear to me that it's issuance of a notice and it doesn't pertain, it doesn't talk about when the tenant is evicted. it doesn't talk about the tenant at all in the definition. so i do think it's reasonable to take the position that it's this particular notice of termination. >> i understand that, but the fact that you are not willing to say that it's reasonable to take the other position or it's unreasonable to take the other position is troubling actually. and sort of makes it seem like in fa
of the sunshine ordinance and the brown act. they then next directed a city employee to release the letter on official stationery to the san francisco bay guardian and to the public. after we raised these questions, they said we'll track it after it had been used legally. today i will discuss specifics about this letter. today i just want to ask this. did mr. herrera learn to act illegally from the library commission or vice versa. personally, i think they have been colluding so long to e evade the law it's simply second nature for now. this was done completely unlawfully violation of the brown act all of this was done with private conversations between those board members led by gomez who is already recommended for removal. >> thank you, next speaker. >> good afternoon. the libraries action go on and compound. but the supervisors, your body is looking the other way and so you are complicity is very sad and inappropriate thing. last week i mentioned in the cover story i said it had problems that included the size of the friends group operation for example not just providing a party with
that being in a friendly family city, that being able to provide this service for these children on-site is to show a commitment to family-friendly city. i'm looking forward to the hearing which supervisor ferrel has called at the city joint committee of the board of education and look forward to working with his office and dcyf and sfusd in making this a reality. i also want to acknowledge supervisor mar and yee who will also be cosponsoring this resolution and would like everyone to attend this meeting related to the children's fund and the public enrichment education fund. the focus of these meetings is to create a shared vision for children and families and dates and locations will be happening throughout the month of november throughout the city. you can find these on dcyf our children, our city, website. the last is in memoriam that i would like to smut. -- submit. i don't have the notes on that. >> thank you supervisor kim. supervisor mar? >> thank you, madam clerk, as a single dad, i'm happy that kim has just announced that norman and i all three board presidents are in sup
of perjury, the city librarian failed to figure that out. and he also didn't seem to understand that finding such a statement is perjury, even when it is not done in front of the public official under oath. and i have to believe that someone as intelligent does not understand those matters and there must be many more city employees who do not understand, and potentially a lot of other were filing and complaints with the ftpc against the members. >> and it is the same as mr. herrera in similar amounts. >> in section ten is says that due to the records involved. and it has been side tracked from the regular duties end quote, under the sunshine ordinance and the san francisco public records act. and responding to public records requests, they are among the regular duties of every city employees. this mistakingly represents this as something that they are being taken away from their duties. it is part of their duty and any city employee who is asked for a record is a requirement and part of their job duties to provide a job response. and putting this in a report saying that they are taken away f

is the information came from informational interview us with various city employees. most of whom were from parks and recreation. i don't want to highlight that. most of those employees are not educated and trained to assess and diagnosed mental health and come up with issues. however there were in the reports stated that many of the individuals who dwell in golden gate park come from drug abuse and mental health issues. chemical dependent issues weren't consulted on this report. this is about homeless people in golden gate park an they were not surveyed. there are a lot of suggestions and recommendations on how to move forward but not addressed. i believe that much can be done to make our services better and more coordinated efforts to support people. another point that i want to highlight that was mentioned in the report is that so sfpd does reach homeless outreach training and services, in the report park employees do not receive training and information on outreach on homeless and that's another potential policy issue to provide better services to homeless in the park. >> thank you, next spea
the world, and is still in use in many cities today. but cities constructed these systems before treatment was the standard. and even today's largest treatment plant doesn't have the capacity to treat the sudden volumes of water rushing through a combined system during rain. the plant is overloaded, and the excess rainwater, mixed with untreated raw sewage, is diverted straight into local waterways, creating a combined sewer overflow, or cso. there are over 700 communities in the united states with combined sewer systems. the other approach was to separate wastewater from stormwater, using two pipe networks. this separate system simply carries the stormwater away from the city. but even separate systems pollute the watershed. in developed areas, concrete and other impervious services prevent water from naturally soaking into the land. as the rainwater moves over the roads and concrete expanse, it captures trash and invisible chemicals, sending them straight to the nearest waterway -- untreated. when engineers first designed america's water infrastructure -- the drinking water, wastewater,
creek bed. and there has been a big problem with a path of destructive feral pigs that prompted the city council to propose a change in the law. the council going to allow whether to allow wild pigs to be shot within city limits they're a problem at almaden country club. >> reporter: one of the city councilmen proposing this change in the law says he's heard from his constituents, some afraid to go out on halloween venl the pigs can get up to 200 and 300 expounds can carry diseases. if the law is changed shooting a pig will require a state permit allowing that when the animal is a threat to life or property. this video taken by san jose resident ted barikmo shows the feral pigs in his neighborhood. san jose city councilman johnny cammus says they can be a threat to people. he wants to have them trapped, shot and killed within city limits. but right now, san jose law prohibits discharge of a firearm within city limits except for police, or in self-defense, today and he a councilman asked for a ordinance changing that, allowing for the discharge by a licensed trapper only for the purpose

home owners that are on a fixed income and want to continue to be home owners in the city. i think that's an issue that a lot of home owners are dealing with. and the date of whether ellis act evictions impacts your ability to buy pass this conversion. the lottery system. i have a question about the date we interpret as being the date. i understand the city attorneys argument and i understand the difficult position, but the city is interpreting this. but i have real issues with landlords taking advantage of the fact that they know an ordinance is coming down and giving a notice of eviction only 12 days before the ordinance goes into effect and rewarding those property owners evicting another senior disabled resident in our city. i don't want to tribute that to the current tic owners. what is really frustrating to me about this whole tic conversation is that so many people purchase these units and not realizing what they had done and who they evicted to that ownership in the present. that is most frustrating aspects of the tic ownership which is why identify -- i have a lot of issues bec
or not? >> john from the city attorneys office. i guess while technically there might be some ability to interpret this language this notice to the board when the tenant is given notice to vacate. it is true in this particular case, these notices were served probably within days of the november 16th, 2004, cutoff. i believe there is a circulation where one of the tenants was elderly and continued to reside for a year beyond that time. but this refers to the issuance of the notice. i will say i think as i recall because i worked on this back in 2004, before it was adopted. i think the november 16th date was a day where the piece of legislation was being heard at the board of supervisors and the amendment was made and to give everyone notice they created that date whiches the hearing date which was the land use committee or full board. >> i think it's important to have some clarity if this is an interpretation of that ordinance and at is date that we choose. there is a number of buildings i'm sure that we are considering for the bypass that may or may not interpret this ordinance be e
